I’ve started a shawl with some yarn from my stash. The yarn is Lorna Laces Shepherd Sock in Purple Club. It has a bunch of different purples in it. It has been difficult to find a project to knit with it where the yarn doesn’t overpower the pattern.
I’ve had this shawl pattern in my queue for a while. It’s the Westport Shawl by Sarah Wilson. Her group on Ravelry (The Sexy Knitter) is doing a KAL right now. And what I had loved about this shawl was how great it looked in a variegated yarn.
But now that I’ve started this shawl, I’m not so sure.
Part of me still likes it. I like how the stockinette section looks. But the lace is pretty garbled. I don’t want this to be a project that people look at and cluck their tongues and shake their heads about my bad yarn choice.
